EVERY so often I receive emails suggesting I am morally reprehensible. Interesting, like the following email, they often follow a function at an Australian university.
I attended a very interesting lecture today around Climate change denialism with guest speakers Dr Andrew Glikson of the Planetry Science Institute and Professor Clive Hamilton of the ANU [Australian National University].
It seems to me there is a vast array of eminent scientists who are in agreement that increased levels of carbon due to human activity is having an undeniable impact on global warming.
You term yourself as a whistleblower and as long ago as 2005 (I guess you could call that either 3 or 4 years ago depending on which month) you embarked upon studying ‘the science of global warming’. I would like you to elaborate a little more in your personal profile on your website as to under whose employ you have been in the past 10 years or so. Maybe you could also elaborate on how the IPA receives funding and from whom it receives funding?
Our planet is at a crisis point and yet we have people like yourself pushing a public agenda that there is nothing to worry about. I can’t think of anything more morally or ethically reprehensible to be perfectly frank!!!

I no longer work for the IPA, and my website also explains that my sources of income are varied. I anticipate earning a total of A$25,000 this financial year – enough to get by.
Of course my income would increase if more people made a donation to the running of this blog – click the orange button at the top right hand side of this webpage.
